    anyone you don't know if they're "the" groom or "a" groom. How is that not rude?

    and "I'll send you the links" because it will be a COLD day in America when I set my family doctor up to answer phone calls from a bunch of people too ignorant to call their own doctor or to use a...

    Call your family doctor and ask when the last case of wild polio was reported in the United States.

    It's all on-line Erin. You're the main person laughing at me. You must know how to operate a search engine by now. If you can't find it, e-mail and I'll send you links.

    Yes, I know of someone who actually died of the flu. (Wait, maybe it WAS anthrax!)

    The RNA viruses are considered more virulent, in general.

    I don't take anti-biotics- haven't had a single dose of anything like that for over eight years. Doctors don't like my attitude about that, and shove samples into my hands and tell me when those are...

    will not prevent inhalation anthrax but washing your hands will prevent skin anthrax. I doubt anyone will deliberately send me anthrax and I doubt that I will ever be exposed more than I already have...

    though perhaps I should have said instead "If one inhales enough anthrax one can be dead within twelve hours."

    This is a very serious issue. We are at war. We are being attacked at home. The...

    But keep in mind that Anthrax is a bacteria, which is Good, not a virus, which would be Bad.

    are useless. We've never been attacked with anthrax before. Yes, I ALWAYS wash my hands after checking the mail- the Postmaster General said to and if the Postmaster General will admit there's that...

    over the winter? I'm getting a lovely mare to ride this winter- I'm swapping my TB for her for a bit- I was looking forward to FINALLY doing a horse-trial and my TB mare pulled up lame one day- and...

    I was D of Horsemanship there one summer. Cured ME of camp work. *s*

    It's starting to clear over here. Thank-you. Still no horse shopper- maybe she decided to wait for a drier day. I would.

    Oh...

    It's pouring and I had better get off-line- some equally hardy soul is coming to look at one of my horses today- no arena, mind you- just rain rain and more rain. I hope she doesn't drown driving...

    I have eked a passage, piaffer and levade out of various and sundry ponies. I would roll over and die before I would allow a video of myself riding as poorly as the WC finalists do on OLN. I would...
